    That guy just put a 100 dollar Tube Screamer through a 3000 dollar Heritage and a 3000 dollar Divided by 13 amp. I bet that amp scream when you turn it up.

    The Tube Screamer is very popular and often copies. I was an MRX guy back in the day. I use a Fulltone Full Drive II, but I also have a Fulltone OCD, that never made it to my pedal board.

    For a while back in the day I used a RAT distortion pedal.

      Yeah, I thought it was rather ironic that they would do a video on "cheap pedals", but use a really nice, high-end amp and guitar to show it off.

      The Tube Screamer is quite possibly THE most copied pedal of all time. If it isn't, it's gotta be one of the top three.

      I LOVE my V3 OCD - it's one of my all-time favorite dirt pedals.

      If you like the Rat, you should check out the Animals Pedal Tioga Road Cycling Distortion review I recently did - it's basically a Rat at heart, but with some boutique pedal designer component tweaks, and three different clipping options - symmetrical (like a stock Rat), asymmetrical, and no diodes. Plus, at $119 "street", it's affordable too.

        The video made perfect sence to me. Everyone raves about the SRV tone coming from the Tube Screamer but rarely mention the Dumble and Fender amp mix he had. Priced any Dumble amps recently? In 2012, some fetched $150,000. On the other hand, he put a $10 pedal though that amp and it sounded great.

        At home, when I'm mixing up a sound 99 percent of the time I'm engaging my pedals with my hands and plastic housings like the Berringer or Danelectro don't take on abuse other applications do. At the same time your amp has to sound good because a pedal isn't going to fix it.

          I've always been a fan of the theory that says the whole chain matters... guitar, cables, pedals, amp - it's all important.
